Aniplex USA has released a new trailer for the upcoming Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba Entertainment District Arc, which premieres on December 5. The anime will be streamed on Crunchyroll and Funimation.
The Entertainment District Arc takes place after the events of Demon Slayer – Kimetsu No Yaiba – The Movie: Mugen Train, which received a TV broadcast version that premiered in October. The Entertainment District Arc will see Tanjiro and his allies contending with a new demon foe called Daki.
The returning staff includes Haruo Sotozaki as director, Akira Matsushima as character designer and chief animation director, Yuuko Oumae as color designer, Yuuichi Terao as photography director, Kazuki Nishiwaki as 3D director, Yuki Kajiura and Go Shiina as music composers, and Miyuki Satou, Youko Kajiyama, and Mika Kikuchi are participating as sub character designers and character designers.

Demon Slayer -Kimetsu no Yaiba- first aired in 2019 with 26 episodes, with Mugen Train releasing in 2020. Both are based on the manga by Koyoharu Gotouge, which was first serialized in 2016 in the Weekly Shonen Jump magazine and ended with 211 chapters in 2020 with a total of 23 tankoubon volumes published.
Aniplex of America describes the first season as:
It is the Taisho Period in Japan. Tanjiro, a kindhearted boy who sells charcoal for a living, finds his family slaughtered by a demon. To make matters worse, his younger sister Nezuko, the sole survivor, has been transformed into a demon herself. Though devastated by this grim reality, Tanjiro resolves to become a “demon slayer” so that he can turn his sister back into a human, and kill the demon that massacred his family.
